A Film by Ricarda Maria Holztrattner

Synopsis

CHILDREN’S GAMES. Melanie is a teenager and a digital native. A cell phone conversation, then another – communication is omnipresent. When she hangs out in the woods, she touches herself, even though it’s just another mise-en-scène. “Sexties” are quickly sent and the internet does not forget. On the internet, Melanie calls herself „GRRRL“ and GRRRL ignores this dangerous fact – at least now, because NOW is all that matters to her.
